Summary Care Records
Summary Care Record - your emergency care summary
The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record which will be used in emergency care.
The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely.
Your Summary Care Record will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask your permission before they look at it. This means that if you have an accident or become ill, healthcare staff treating you will have immediate access to important information about your health.
We are supporting Summary Care Records but as a patient you have a choice:
- Yes I would like a Summary Care Record - you do not need to do anything and a Summary Care Record will be created for you.
- No I do not want a Summary Care Record - enclosed is an opt out form. Please complete the form and hand it to a member of the GP practice staff.
